Please Help With Baby's Middle Name!

UPDATE! We decided to go with Asher Elias! Everyone had wonderful name suggestions and we appreciated the help and thoughtfulness! Reading the conments solidified our love for the name and gave us the clarity we needed! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hi everyone! My name is Marissa Gillam. :blush: I’m over 13 weeks pregnant with baby number 2. I have an almost 3 year old girl named Evelyn Hope Gillam. I had a miscarriage and an ectopic right after that. My rainbow baby is very healthy so far and the NIPT results came back good! :rainbow::heart: Now I really need help with the middle name. Hubby and I agreed on the first name Asher which is set in stone but we need help with his middle name. Good meanings are huge for us! The 3 we like the most so far are, Asher Jace, Asher Cade/Kade and Asher Elias. The problem with Jace is my husband’s sister has the same initials and goes by AJ and more than likely his side of the family would would call our son AJ as well. Also my husband’s dad’s middle name is Jay and he wasn’t the best dad so my husband’s siblings aren’t a fan because Jay and Jace sound similar. We liked Cade/Kade but it seems to have very mixed reviews on forums since it’s a shortened version of Caden/Kaden. Lastly, we really like Elias but wonder if it’s too soft sounding? I originally had in my head that I wanted a one syllable boy middle name starting with a consonant. Idk… I really do love Asher Elias but kind of wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions I haven’t of yet.

I appreciate you help! :blush:

I’d eliminate [name_u]Asher[/name_u] [name_u]Jace[/name_u], for the reasons you’ve listed!

[name_u]Asher[/name_u] [name_u]Cade[/name_u] is cool - I can’t see anything wrong with it!

[name_u]Asher[/name_u] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] is great - sleek and and sharp - I like the balance of sounds!

I’ll suggest:
